4-slice Computed Tomography at VETMED

Computed Tomography (CT) has become an essential part of advanced diagnostics in veterinary medicine. Because of its ability to assist in the diagnosis of a vast number of diseases, CT has been described as the gold standard in radiological imaging by the medical profession. VETMED can now offer you the gold standard at our location. VETMED’s 4-slice CT offers procedural times that are six times faster than single slice CT, thus allowing for scans with excellent image quality within 5-7 minutes. The results will be faxed to the referring veterinarian directly and a CD-ROM will be provided for the client.
